Back in 2005 or so, I was doing a lot of photography at the company I worked for. Events, locations, products--you name it, i shot it.

If you’ve spent any time in downtown Great Falls, you’ve probably seen Jenn and her laptop working on an article. She runs The Electric Great Falls, and she does a kick-ass job of reporting things that matter to Great Falls.

Reviewing the Archive area of my Flickr account is a great way to jog the memory when writing these Year in Review posts. Even if you don’t blog, it’s fun to run back through the memories...

Auto-upload I’ve posted before about the best ways to get photos from your iPhone to your computer if you don’t use iPhoto or Aperture. Dropbox’s auto-upload feature is still my favorite method of doing that. But what if I want to skip the computer altogether? I use the Flickr app’s auto-upload feature. Honestly, I can’t...
